Blogger of the Week: GBO Fashion

Hey guys!
This week's BOW is Shannon from her blog GBO Fashion! This girl, she is amazing! I've met her in person and she's just as fantastic there as she is on her blog. She's hilarious, so so nice, and has amazing style. I just know you'll love her as much as I do!

Hi Gentri Lee peeps!  So pumped to be here with all of you! Ok, Confession: I may or may not have peed my pants a little when Gentri picked me to be Blog of the Week. Mmmmyep - that happened. Was that TMI? Confession #2: I'm secretly a total Jealous Jillian over how adorable Gentri Lee is. Right? It's not even fair! K anywhooooooo...

My name is Shannon & I run the circus over at GBO Fashion - a blog about personal style, fashion advice, & some other junk occasionally.  People always wonder 'what the deuce does GBO mean?'  Wool, the best way to answer that is to tell ya about these fine ladies...

These are my three foxy sisters.  Aren't they gorge? Well to tell ya the truth, we're all just a bunch of Vain Vanessas who probably care a little too much about how we look (another confession for ya), but as such we'd always get each other's opinion on how we looked before going out while we were growing up. Sort of by accident, we came up with a quick & easy rating system - we'd simply look at each other and say 'GBO?'. Translation: 'Do I look Good, Bad or Ok?'. Now, these gals seem sweet enough from the pic, but don't let em' fool ya - when it comes to rating a fellow sister, they were BRUTALLY honest. Here's a sampling of the kinds of answers we'd get: 'Well your outfit is G but your face is B. You need to go re-cover that naaasty zit on your chin!'  Yep! That's about how it went. Are you judging us right now for how ridic we were? Yeah, me too.

Eventually we all grew up & went our separate ways, but we still wanted to be able to get each other's opinions on our outfits & how we looked.  And we decided, why not get other people's opinions too! And so was birthed the idea of GBO Fashion - a style blog where you can RATE the outfits posted as either G, B, or O.  As I like to say, 'Be inspired by the G's and learn how to avoid the B's!'  It's fun! Right guys? Right? Bueller? Bueller? K anywhooooo...

About a year and a half ago, I married THIS dreamboat...
...who just so happens to be the love of my life. In April we finished school up in Provo, UT, then packed up the moving van and headed to sunny San Francisco, where we are now living!

What else goes on over here at GBO, you ask? Oh just a little bit of thisssssssss...

The occasional home decor post! (more pics of our Provo home right HERE.)

And thisssssssssssss...

MENSWEAR MONDAY, every Monday! Cuz boys like to look cute too! Or is my husband usually the one who gets strong-armed into being my male model? Mmmyep. God bless him for the things he's willing to do for his annoying wife.

And thissssssssssssssssss....

Recognize that cutie? That's when she was my STYLE CRUSH for the week! You'll probs recognize last week's too.

And thissssssssssss...

The occasional fitness post (k, can you try not to judge me for this puke-double-puke pic where I look half asleep? And really? Who posts pics of themselves in a sports bra on the internets? Guys trust me - I've judged myself enough for the whole of us. K maybe not. Judge away.). Get ready: we're doing a summer fitness series in June that starts this week! Come check it out. Woot woot!

And thissssssssss....
The Weekly WOOTS & WOOFS, every Wednesday! Just a simple way we document the things going on in our lives, some of which are Woot-Woots! And some of which are Woofs (womp womp).

And LOTS of thisssssssssssssssss....

Straight up blooper pics. Cuz nobody likes making fun of me more than I like making fun of me. Plus, what kind of person would I be to withhold these from you? A selfish person. That's what.

K, for those of you gouging out your eyeballs right now from GBO Fashion overload (which probs happened after pic #1), I'm sorry! For you crazies who might be interested in some more of this nonsense, COME ON OVA & give the rating thang a try on today's outfit! It's one big uncensored party over here & everyone's invited. Woot Woot!

Thanks again for having me Gentri dear! Love your guts & livers! And thanks to all you cute Gentri Lee peeps for enduring this post! God bless you for it, and your children, and your children's children, and your children's children's children (SHUTTING.UP.NOW.).

xoxoxo.
Shannon
